If you receive the Food and Nutrition Magazine, you know that this year marked the start of a new segment at the back of the magazine catering to food waste. There have been some interesting articles about composting, aquafabe, and using fruits and vegetables that have passed their prime.

I just recently received this month’s issue of Today’s Dietitian, which I’ve already told you I love. However, I haven’t finished last month’s issue. Or the one before that. And I won’t even tell you how many JANDs I have lying around.
